Trident has been implemented a training program and proprietary in-house software to elevate the employee experience and create a more efficient work environment to skyrocket the success of Trident’s employees, said officials. 

“Trident is investing in the growth and development of Chattanooga’s economy by aggressively staffing our team and providing access to world class training and technology,” said Daniel Lucas, director of Innovation at Trident Transport. “New team members leveraging Trident’s latest tech and training implementations are seeing more success on a quicker scale. Investing in our team’s tools improves employee morale, efficiency, and commissions. We are now helping them earn more from day one.”

Trident is hiring for their entry-level account manager positions, among other available positions found on Trident’s career website at www.tridenttransport.com/careers .

We know the future holds great growth for this company thanks to our dedicated, hard-working team.”

Inc. 5000 has recognized Trident as one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States for three years in a row, ranking in the top 500 twice.
